The 8 most beautiful sights and museums to visit in Purmerend
Purmerend is especially known to the elderly among us for its livestock markets. The name of the central square, the Koemarkt, and the striking image of the cows that you can find there, remember that time. Unfortunately, after many animal diseases in the past, the square has lost its function in this area. The square is now mainly used for other markets and the annual grand fair. Another nice point to visit is the Melkwerkbrug on the east side of the city centre. From this high striking bridge you have a nice view over the area and the city centre.
